Venus Vulture - phantomshadows

Some releases are making it quite easy for the listener to create their own pictures while listening to the pieces. Like Astrowind (because of the name) or the last ryonkt-release (because of the title). "phantomshadows" by Venus Vulture is one of these releases too. And I think it’s because of the artwork. It’s done by Sean Monaghan himself and it's not just a normal cover-artwork. The release also contains eight additional images, complementing the musical part of the release.

From the first keyboard-pattern the complete release let me sink into a big peaceful ocean. It is not a frightened feeling of sinking down and never getting up. It's more like meditative contemplation. You sink and sink, but when you are looking back to the surface, you can see sunbeams reflecting on the water. You can come up easy and without anxieties or breathlessness.

But that's just my picture, I guess you'll see something completely different.
